Cameron Upper Elementary Concerts


The Cameron Upper Elementary Concerts at Jones Hall provide a full-orchestra experience for students in grades 4-6 to take a journey that will allow them to interpret for themselves the intent of the composers, musicians and conductor. These concerts are designed to spark the imagination of students and provide motivation for individuals to begin playing an instrument. Using the grades 4 and 5 science content from the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, students will apply the science expertise they have gained in their classroom to connect to iconic orchestral masterworks.
